I have an old table cloth that was at my parent's house when they passed. It was horribly stained and brown and sueisallaboutquilts told me about Retro Clean.

I ordered some online and soaked the table cloth in it. The first picture is how it looked even after washing it, soaking it, and rinsing it many times.

The other picture is how it looks today on my table for Thanksgiving after using Retro Clean. It worked wonderfully!! I am so happy that it's been restored. I will put it away for my daughters and use it occasionally. Maybe even make it into a quilt someday. (it's a little puffy in the middle from being ironed on a narrow ironing board.)

Thanks for mentioning this tip!

What a lovely tablecloth! It's so nice that it can be used and appreciated again. It's nice to bring out the special things for the holidays!

Wow! My MIL had one similar to that. I'll have to go through her stuff and dig it out. I though it was done for!

Thanks for the tip! Will have to order some and try it out on some stained work clothes. Hopefully it will restore them so that I can wear them to work again.
